Any idea how you can tweak the secondary skills percentages? Like rising 30% on expert necromancy or 15% more movement on expert logistics? I haven't found that to be in the .txt resources, I'm afraid you must probably mod the exe file for that.

I have no idea. I've checked every text file, but no success, they must be in the exe itself..

How to make map animation from creature's Def

Guide made by sheldenzaire's request.
Well, I do not have any good image/picture editor, but it doesn't mind. Paint will be fine for this, you can use any other tool you know.
So, all the tools you'll need for this are: Def Preview, DefTool, and some picture editor (Paint, etc..).

Okay, lets start . I've made only several map defs for creatures, but every time they have worked perfectly, so if you follow my instructions, you may succeed .

First, open your def with Def Preview, then choose "Mouse Over" -section, then click "edit", and extract the frames wherever you want:



After that, open your picture editor (or Paint), and make a 64x64 picture, you can get the right background color from any other Heroes 3 def (creatures, mountains..), I took it this time from the Dragon's picture:



Easy, right? Well now comes the part that takes more time.
Choose "Copy From" (or something like that, I have Finnish Paint..), and find the first picture of the Mouse Over animation of the creature. Then re-size the image:



45 percent of the original image is good for this creature (for other creatures, there might be a different number..).
Here is what I got:



Perfect. When this is done to all of the frames (you may do only one frame if you want, it wont look that good, but still it's something), open DefTool, choose "$43 Adventure Object", then move to "Frames", and just add all the frames you did:



If you didn't remove the pink and purple colors, the shadow, choose Faint and Deep Shadows, otherwise the game wont show them as shadows, but colors. And if you did remove the shadows, go to "Shadow", and click "Generate".
And the final touch, go to "General", choose the Def Path (your def), and click "Make Def":



Again you could choose also the path to the lod, so it would automatically add the def to your lod.
If you don't, it's your problem to get it to the game , you could make several defs and try to add the with a *.wog file, then also edit the names of the creatures with using ResEdit 2 and the Text Edit (creature names and stats are stored in "ZCRTRAITS.TXT"..), but you can do whatever you want with your def .

Hope you got the def and will continue modding with us!




Guide moved here to shorten the first post.

To edit WoG, you will need to change ZCRTRAIT.TXT for creatures. Every WoG text file starts with a Z, so if you edit other than those, the changes will be seen for only the original version. About creature abilities, you mean the special abilities? Because the special abilities cannot be changed with only txt file editing.. But if you mean the skills (attack, defense, HP..), these can be edited through the ZCRTRAITS.TXT.
Also, make sure you have the right tool (TextEdit).
And last, you don't need to put the edited text file back to the lod, just place it to /data folder and it'll work .

If you have any more questions, just ask. That's what I made the thread for , WoG modding FAQ.

I already said, adding special abilities is not possible with only text file editing. Adding shooting ability is very very hard, the only team that has done it is the New Grove Team, and I don't know what exactly did they edit.
Steal life? Like the Vampires? I can not help you with that, I have no experience about things like that..
